Accredited activities coordinator

4.0 01/07/2016
What I would highlight: I have only just started it, but there is a choice of format. I chose paper copy. So far I am enjoying the content, I have a personal tutor whom I can contact via email if I need advice/help, and reply within an hour or so. I found Steve to be very friendly and gave me the information required before I enrolled. The course is set out in clear concise style. I can't really comment further as I've only just got to the end of unit 1. I feel that the course is going to help me greatly in achieving my desire to work as an AO.
What could be improved: As of yet, I haven't found anything I haven't liked. Im a just enjoying studying again.
